from the star of the obama family, michelle obama. you know, this is just like a relay and you start off with the fastest person. so i'm going to be at home and i'm going to be watching it with our girls. and i am going to try not to let them see their daddy cry. because when michelle starts talking, i start getting all misty. >> let's go to our white house correspondent brianna keilar. she's downstairs here in the convention at the time warner cable. what else do we expect the first lady to say tonight? >> wolf, we're really expecting her to stay somewhat on message when it comes to what president obama's campaign is all about. that he's making decisions putting the middle class first. but she's going to be doing it. a source close to her tells me from a very personal place. she'll obviously talk about herself is the person who knows him best, around him at very pivotal moments and she'll talk about how she's seen him make difficult decisions, whether it be health care reform or over the auto bailout. and that she has seen him make these decisions putting the middle class first. tha
to be done. >> tonight we heard from the star of the obama family. first lady michelle obama. this hour we will be showing you the big moments, the first speeches and we begin with the first lady. take a look. serving as your first lady is an honor and a privilege. but back when we first came together four years ago, i still had concerns about this journey we'd begun. while i believed deeply in my husband's vision for this country and i was certain he would make an extraordinary president, like any mother, i was worried about what it would mean for our girls if he got that chance. how would we keep them grounded under the glare of the national spotlight. how would they feel being uprooted from their school, their friends and the only home they had ever known. our life before moving to washington was filled with simple joys. saturdays at soccer games, sundays at grand's house and a date night was either dinner or a movie because as an exhausted mom, i couldn't stay awake for both. and the truth is, i loved the life we had built for our girls. and i deeply love the man i had built that life
, michelle obama, is hitting the campaign trail a bit. she took on the campaign's fight for some more money. and as i said, the start of the campaign about to kick off. day two, the gold medal pledge of allegiance. we'll explain what's going on. and uterine cancers. a i even wrote a play about that. my symptoms were a pain in my abdomen and periods that were heavier and longer than usual for me. if you have symptoms that last two weeks or longer, be brave, go to the doctor. ovarian and uterine cancers are gynecologic cancers. symptoms are not the same for everyone. i got sick...and then i got better. ♪ [ male announcer ] the first look...is only the beginning. ♪ ♪ introducing a stunning work of technology. ♪ introducing the entirely new lexus es. and the first ever es hybrid. this is the pursuit of perfection. try the #1 gastroenterologist recommended probiotic. align. align naturally helps maintain digestive balance. ♪ ooh, baby, can i do for you today? ♪ try align today. >>> fresh from her big speech last night the first lady michelle obama was talking to smaller audiences
is that obviously this is the finale. they feel that michelle obama knocked it out of the park talking about her husband as a husband and in terms of his character. president clinton obviously framed the debate when it comes to the issues they feel like. and he is going to be the one who talks about himself and what he will do if he gets a second chance, a chance at four more years, wolf. >> what about the other speeches tonight, dana? i know the vice president's got a major speech. that will precede the president. but there will be other speeches as well. >> that's right. let's start with the vice president's speech. i just talk today a source familiar with that speech who said it's going to be kind of a series of anecdotes talking about what it has been like to serve at the president's side. and their goal there is to, again, serve as a bit of a character witness, but more specific to president obama's leadership style, how he makes decisions and things like that. i was told that it is a "very generous speech" when it comes to the kind of person president obama is. and of course joe biden is n
, and i'm sure will, tomorrow, will be saying, man, they have michelle obama, bill clinton, and president obama. i wish we had a murderer's row like that on our side. >> i have to wrap this up. a bit of breaking news we have to pass on to people. thank you, roland and will. as usual. >> you bet. >>> this is cnn breaking newses. >>> ok. now for the breaking news. a u.s. airways flight returns to the airport following a threat. our affiliate wpvi is reporting u.s. airways flight 1267 had already left philadelphia on its way to dallas when a threat was called in involving a passenger carrying an explosive liquid. it happened just after 7:00 eastern this morning. the plane is back on the ground. the plane will now be searched. of course we're going to monitor the situation. if they find anything or even if they don't, of course we'll pass it along to you. but for now, those passengers are pretty much stuck. we'll be right back. >>> 13 minutes past the hour. to money news this morning, one of the keywords used in both political conventions, jobs. this morning, the labor department says 365,000
and almost everything these days, including your child's food. michele obama pushing a new health initiative in public schools. feels like hummus and broccoli and salad. kids are creating a market for lunch, joining me now is the founder and ceo of the education action group foundation. why are we wasting money on these progrs? >> we have bureaucrats who believe that they know what is best. they pass these regulations but what government schools will feed children. what we are seeing is a culture shock, kids are used to hamburgers and hot dogs and chicken nuggets and those sorts of things, and now they are being force-fed hummus and all of the other things you're talking about. cheryl: here is the problem here is that the government's responsibility were the parents responsibility to deal with the epidemic? >> no, it is the parents responsibility. >> we as a society need to step up and say that we need to fix this. and we needed to keep kids in soccer programs are ways to get kids to exercise more. the top-down mentality is not working. what we are seeing our kids that are getting 850 calori
of things i would be listening for. finally, he has to bring the heart we saw michelle obama touch on. 2008, he was this candidate that in spired so much passion in people. that has waned is an understatement in four years, some people feel bitterly disappointed. can he reconnect and resell that brand and make people have that crush on him again they had in 2008. >> oh, the crush on obama. we'll look for those three points. we'll look for you as well, part of our primetime coverage of the democratic national convention. the whole thing kicks off 7:00 eastern, wolf blitzer, anderson cooper, the rest of cnn's political team. and 10:00 is the hour in which the president will officially accept his party's nomination for re-election. at midnight, piers morgan will put a wrap on the 2012 dnc for us on cnn. i will be watching. i hope you will be as well. >>> i want to take you back to mitt romney. moments ago he spoke about the democratic national convention. >> i think it will be interesting to listen to the president tonight. what i'd like him to do is report on his promises, but there are forgo
tonight. i've got to you if tonight is essentially afterglow from michelle obama's speech or is there a separate second night agenda for the democrats here leading up to the bill clinton speech? >> rachel, it looked for awhile there there were two versions of the democratic party. there was the clinton version and the barack obama version. that was a wrong perception a lot of us had. there are, in fact, two complimentary parts to the democratic party. the clinton part and the obama part. when they are together, it is a robust political party. when they are separated by division or bad feeling, they are not a strong political party. the clinton case has to come back for obama to win. it looks like it's coming back starting tonight. >> chris, are there any substantive differences between those two parts of the party you're talking about? any differences between clinton and obama that either need to be resolved or glossed over in order to make this sort of remarriage tonight work for the president? >> i don't know if it comes down to policy, but it certainly comes down to pol
the democrats had a more organized, more consistent message. they had better speakers. michelle obama, bill clinton, president obama did a better job making their case, selling their case to the american people. one other thing, though. that 47% remark governor romney made at that fund-raiser back in may that was released just last week, that's breaking through. i was in michigan last week. when you travel the country and talk to people, if you talk to pollsters they say it has hurt governor romney again on that fundamental question, who would best handle the economy and who represents your values. that has hurt. >> gloria, thank you. john king, thanks. >>> we got breaking news ahead on the program. for months, we have been reporting on charities that take your money and then n't deliver on their promises. tonight, the single largest fund-raising company in the world, quadriga art, will now have to answer questions from the u.s. senate about their financials. ome ♪ ♪ to look at [ sighs ] ♪ oh, he's shaggy ♪ and he eats like a hog [ male announcer ] the volkswagen jetta. available wi
, it will be in tomorrow. i read it. you quote michelle obama at t democratic convention in her speech, she said being president reveals who you are. you say so do campaigns and you're not happy with what's being revealed about mitt romney? how so? what do you think this tape reveals? >> well, there's a lot of us who have been waiting for a long time for some seminal moment for mitt romney to reveal his character and unfortunately, i'm afraid that this tape is exactly what that does but not in the way we had hoped for. it's getting harder to support him, getting harder to defend him. you know, i talked a lot about how i remember in september 2000, things were difficult, the dark days of september, and easy to bounce back, but when you start casting off half the country as victims, that causes a lot of pause for independents and people like me who cross the line in the mid '90s to join the republican party because of ideas like compassionate conservatism. i don't hear any of that from mitt romney. i'm trying to figure out what the broader vision and narrative is that takes care of the least among us. w
tough, isn't it, the public eye. if you are michelle obama or ann romney or whoever you are, kate middleton, doesn't really matter who you are or what country you're in, the amount of attention that female very high profile people get these days, it's pretty unbearable, isn't it? how do you deal with that generally? generally? >> well, i think -- i think it's very difficult because you are always -- you always worry so much. not really, i can't generalize. i worry so much. i worry what's going to be the backlash or what is it -- what -- am i looking right, not looking right? in fact, i am a very godmother. an independent woman, i'm a children's book author, and i'm striving to make a difference in education for children with my charitable causes. so i think the best thing you can do is strive on. keep your head held high, and have courage in your heart. and, you know, you can't go back. you just go forward and keep walking tall. >> you certainly have done that the last time you were on my show, i got very intrusive with you and asked you about your love life and you said the follo
taxful politicians were named ann and michelle. this is how i saw it when michelle obama first entered the arena. she took a look to see what it would look like from the stage. and two weeks ago, who would have thought that weather would threaten to completely disrupt these carefully laid plans. and of course it did. it canceled one night of the republican convention and forced the democratic convention inside. this is what topical isaac looked like from my hotel room. so as bill clinton said in 1988, in closing, if you need more proof that conventions still matter, they're still fun and are still fascinating, if you need more proof that you really can't touch this, i offer you this, mc hammer. see, conventions do matter. if you want to see more of these pictures, come visit our blog, cnn.com/earlystart. we have more pictures there. worth looking at. all right. moving back now, one of the most inspirational stories from this year's u.s. open, it isn't from a tennis player. it's from military vet who has overcome the oddsputee and is now a ball assist taptan to. an amazing story. go to
of barack obama's first-term record, and they are deploying him now in swing states, even more than michelle obama, he's probably the biggest asset they have. but life is long. you never know when you're going to end up, that these two men are now embracing to this extent. >> life is really long. >> you know, the president got a bounce at the convention, and it's arguable that clinton played a big part in that. we have this new pew research center poll that i found real estate interesting. it showed, when they were asking, what was the highlight of the democratic convention, 29% bill clinton's speech, 16% said the president's speech, and michelle obama's speech was at 15%. so does that also mean that there is a downside to having president clinton -- >> oh, you mean overshadowing -- you know, he -- everybody knows hays not the candidate. i think he's a great character witness for the candidate. i think there was a dangerous dangeat the convention of that kind of a result, because you want your candidate to shine, not the person who is testifying on your behalf to shine. but i think right now
for the president with all of this talk. you had michelle obama talking about what the president believes in and who he cares about. president clinton explained the past. now it is just ready for barack obama to explain what he will do in the future. if this convention has a rhythm, it has a direction, it has an excitement. i think it is great, and i think i can't predict whether there will be a big bounce after it, but i would bet the predicate for a gradual ascension of the democratic ticket in november. >> every american did not watch it, though. >> unfortunately. >> my question would be do they take what bill clinton did in some ways sort of prof sorrial. >> the scene, and you go to black churches and they go preach, baby, preach, to the minister. this is teach, baby, teach. he was teaching america. >> does he take that on the road literally with a white board and says you have heard about medicare. here. >> i talked to him. >> here is the facts, here is what's really going on. >> i talked to the president before the speech for quite a bit, and first he put a lot of effort into it. it sounded li
and first lady michelle obama. we understand education and investing in that pays great dividends for generations really. >> still ahead, we're going to talk about the asian american vote could be key in the battle for the white house. judy chu of california is coming up, the first chinese-american woman elected to congress will be our guest. you're watching "starting point" live from the midnight diner in charlotte. >> announcer: this is the day. the day that we say to the world of identity thieves "enough." we're lifelock, and we believe you have the right to live free from the fear of identity theft. our pledge to you? as long as there are identity thieves, we'll be there. we're lifelock. and we offer the most comprehensive identity theft protection ever created. lifelock: relentlessly protecting your identity. call 1-800-lifelock or go to lifelock.com today. at usaa, we believe honor is not exclusive to the military, and commitment is not limited to one's military oath. the same set of values that drive our nation's military are the ones we used to build usaa bank. with our aw
at the democratic convention you might think added to president obama. bill clinton. michele gave a good speech, i think. bottom line politically bill clinton not to out of the park. >> added to president obama, but that he's attracted because she reminded the democrats a wonderful life used to be. more prosperous, but also a more normal, more same -- mainstream centers democratic party. no connection that he has ever. he is focusing on abortion, contraception, and the marriage. that is not high in anybody's polls. so, you are not here. obviously everybody is talking about this dismal jobs report. what is the political take away? >> i think it's going to be basically a a jump ball. unemployment is down. 367,000 people left the work force. >> it's not good. >> it's not good. bottom line, 70 percent think the economy is in bad shape, 65 percent said the country is off on the wrong track. that's not going to change before the election. the election is died. i fully expect it will stay tied into the debates. >> what do you think will be the breaking point? >> it's going to be the debates. for the firs
you about my friend, barack obama. no one could tell it as eloqu t eloquently as you did, michelle, on monday night. but i know him, to state the obvious from a different perspective, i know him and i want to show you -- i want to show you the character of a leader who had what it took when the american people literally stood on the brink of a new depression. a leader who has what it takes to lead us over the next four years to a future as great as our people. i want to take you inside the white house to see the president as i see him every day, because i don't see him in sound bytes. i walk 30 paces down the hall into the oval office and i see him, i watch him in action. four years ago, the middle class was already losing ground and then the bottom fell out. the financial crisis hit like a sledge hammer on all the people i grew up with. you remember the headlines. you saw some of them in the previews. highlight. highest job losses in 60 years. headlines. economy on the brink. markets plummet worldwide. from the very moment president obama sat behind the desk resolute in the oval o
and our personnel is protected. >> in the midst of all of this michele, as you well know, there is an election going on and governor romney says that the obama administration is not being tough enough. is he right? >> look, i think that in this specific instance of these demonstrations, and what has happened in libya, i think that the response of the obama administration has been appropriate. if we step back though and look at a broader frame of u.s. policy in the middle east and indeed u.s. foreign policy in the world, i think that there's an argument to be made that the united states has not taken the leadership role it really should, that there is very widespread disappointment in the middle east for example that the united states is not doing more regarding syria, that the united states hasn't done as much as people hoped to help the nations in democracies in tunisia, and libya and so there is a way in which what governor romney said is justified. >> thank you, michele dunne, from the carnegie endowment for peace. we appreciate your perspective. >>> when newsroom cont
